Notes: DAMN, it is hard to catch up when I get just a bit behind on these blog posts. For those of you who don’t know, I live in the bay area and it is pride, thus my time has been pretty eaten up by the amazing and beautiful people that I hung out with. I happen to be in just about the best relationship I’ve ever been in with a dude, which is slightly complicated for my queer identity but hey. FUCK IT. I still get misty eyed and sentimental about the thought of people loving one another openly and proudly in the streets and I still feel deeply invested in myself as part of that community. Although I do honestly shudder at the thought of pride sometimes (I hate crowds! I don’t drink!) I showed up this weekend and had an amazing time. It was good to do, and a great reminder about why I have chosen the healthy lifestyle that I have.
Oh, ’cause people at pride? They’re crazy! It was about 90 degrees this weekend and people were totally tossing back booze and cheetos while they baked and fucked each other in the sun. I admire that enthusiasm but that’s not really my style, as you may have guessed. I armed myself with enough apples, salad, macadamia nuts, cold press coffee, water, and sunscreen to support a small gay army and even with all of this positive reinforcement I was incredibly drained at the end of it all (One night DID happen to include dancing until 3:00AM and was followed by a mere six hours of sleep). In a nut shell HAPPY PRIDE! Now for a few nights of 10 hours of sleep!
